Is Cyprus Worth a Visit in Autumn

The Mediterranean is full of stunning islands and countries that have a lot to offer visitors from around the world, and while it won’t be hard to find a destination that’s a little more off the beaten track, you’ll likely want to find a balance between modern living and traditional culture. As the third largest island, Cyprus is often considered to offer tourists just that, but what happens when you want to book your trip after the season ends?

Cyprus in autumn

One of the fantastic things about Cyprus is that the weather is probably at its best in the autumn months of September and October, and as peak season will have just finished, the attractions on offer will still be open for a little longer before winter sets in. Temperatures soar in the summer but they become more bearable in autumn – so this is the perfect time to take a boat tour, visit the mountains, and still enjoy a day at the beach. If you fancy going for a dip in the sea, the waters will still be warm up until around the end of September (or even mid October if a heat-wave sets in), so you won’t have to miss out. Water sports are still extremely popular in this country throughout these months too, and in recent years, it’s more and more common to see visitors with their phones out, recording their thrills and spills. If you fancy doing the same but are worried about your skills with a camera, fret not; CapCut’s video stabilizer uses nothing short of the latest gyroscopic AI algorithms to reduce blur and movement distortion so you’ll be able to see every second as clearly as if footage was professionally shot.

Top attractions

There is so much to see and do in Cyprus year-round that you’ll be spoilt for choice. You can visit one of the many churches, monasteries and cathedrals dotted around the island, take part in a boat tour, visit Paphos Zoo, the Camel Park in Mazotos, Larnaca, and so much more. As it only takes 2 and a half hours to drive straight from Paphos to Ayia Napa (from one end of the island to the other), visitors won’t be limited in the attractions they want to visit. This means you can have an amazing day out at the Tomb of the Kings, visiting architectural beauty, before having a night out on the town in one of the clubbing capitals of the world with little travel time.

Why not visit Cyprus in autumn?

As the crowds largely die down come the start of the school year, early autumn is the perfect time to get out and about in Cyprus. There will still be plenty of visitors, but it won’t be as cramped as July and August, so you’ll be better able to hail cabs, find tables at restaurants and book excursions with ease. CapCut’s YouTube video editor will allow users to take their holiday footage and upload it in 4K to their favourite social media channel – all with no skill and at no cost.
